Hollow Building Upgrades and Options
All of my hollow built blanks are made using a variation of the scalloped method pioneered by E.C. Powell. Hollows, or 'scallops', are strategically sized and located to enhance certain characteristics such as flex, strength, and vibration dampening.  By removing material from the inside of a section it is possible to create a rod that feels more responsive, is lighter in weight and recovers more quickly. Hollow rods are often described as 'snappier' or 'more crisp' feeling.
